    God forbid they, y`know, move closer to civilization or something. .___.

    I wasn`t truly terrified until the small child popped out of the burlap bag.

    In a bag, held by your sister, sliding across a zip-line, every day, twice a day.

    Kudos to you, children.
    I`d pee myself. ._.

    No fatal accidents or serious injuries. Let`s face it, if you fall you`re dead, there won`t be any crawling away with just a serious injury.

    This is how I think the future of Moon Travel for the masses will be... you wait till the moon is under Australia then slide down a giant rope to it, then when it goes back above America you slide down the same rope to get back.

    Ziplining isn`t that bad. I did it in Mexico. Granted,there were more safety regulations and I`m sure the equipment was more stable because the company didn`t want liability issues, but it`s really not that scary.
